Volunteer Opportunities

A co-op is a cooperative effort led by parents, and its success or failure rests squarely on all of our shoulders.  There are many ways you can help:

  • Teach or co-teach a class
  • Assist in a class
  • Help monitor hallways 

After Co-op

We meet on scheduled Mondays, 10am-12pm. After classes are over, everyone is invited to meet at Collins Park for lunch and to let the kids play. Parents also enjoy having time to meet and get to know each other. Time at the park is completely unstructured and parents are responsible for their own children. Collins Park is about a 5 minute drive from St. Dunstan's. 

Shakespeare

We are using Drama Notebook for our script. This royalty-free play is part of a fantastic collection of plays for kids and teens on Drama Notebook

This year we will be doing "As You Like It"!
